    What size Kona Coiler frame for someone whos 5 9/10?

    what size? I was wondering if 18 inches would do as I could always alter the stem, thanks

    I'm about 5'9" and I ride a 17" Coiler and it's a perfect fit for me.

    Hmm...I'm 5-11 and ride an 18' Coiler. When I am DHing I want a smaller one so I switched the stem to a race face Diabolus, That's cool but when i ride it uphill i wish it had a longer stem.
    That's the problem (or best thing ) about the Coiler, it does more than one thing so its hard to tell how to set it up.

    well....I was stupid and got an 18" figuring I'd grow into it (and I still probably will) but it took some getting used to as I was only 5'5" when I bought it

    But an 18" would proly be fine unless you plan to DH a lot, and then you might want a 17

    6'2" and ride a 19" with a 50mm 10 deg stem. I prefer a slightly longer top tube and the Coilers have longer than average TTs. I'd go for the bigger 18" and run a short stem.
